A Serious Man

Film Duel is our written review format in which Benn and James each review a film, and then comment on each others’ reviews to give a proper balance and really fill out the commentary as well as possible. The newest Coen brothers movie, A Serious Man, is in theaters now. Benn and James were so excited about it, that they got an early jump on its release. You’ll find that this is one of our most in depth reviews yet, as there’s a lot of meat to talk about with this film.

Podcast 9: Movies We Hated (That Others Liked)

I like to imagine theyre about to jump to their angsty deaths in this image.

This week on the podcast, the guys do the unthinkable. We bring on our friend Jeremy, numb ourselves with a bit of alcohol, and watched Twilight. And we did it for you. I’m sure you know what we thought, but you’ll want to hear it first hand, as we rail against Twilight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The “wildest podcast ever”.

WARNING: This particular episode gets a bit more explicit than most, so be prepared.
